Police say they don't yet know how Auckland prostitute Jane Furlong died.
It's been confirmed a skeleton found at Port Waikato last month is that of the 17-year-old who went missing in 1993.
Detective Inspector Mark Benefield says they have a team working in Port Waikato today to try to figure out how Jane Furlong died.
He says they've discovered a number of items with her skeleton, but won't say what.
Detective Inspector Benefield says he's been in contact with her mother and son, who was a baby when she went missing.
He says, while it's tough for them, it also brings some closure.
